Assoc. for Industry Abstract In the combustion process for fossil fuel and waste materials, many environmental impacts with SOx, NOx and particulate were reduced by developed flue gas cleaning equipments and legally controlled. Although it appears that trace elements are not currently a major issue for the coal industry, the trends of more stringent environmental regulations in Europe and USA gives the necessity to control the emissions of the trace elements into atmosphere and to understand the state of emis
